Finding OM on Winthrop Street

It’s a Thursday night in Cambridge. I am wandering around Harvard Square area, alone and sober. Looking to fix both predicaments quickly, I took an alley option and found myself on Winthrop Street.

Scouting around for a place to play, I first wandered into Grendel’s Restaurant & Bar. There, with everyone seated at a table in small groups, I found myself the lone man out, and so quickly I went out.

Across the street, I saw my nirvana, OM Restaurant and Lounge. There, within minutes, I was seating in one of their lovely couches, sipping the odd Rain Vodka. While it tasted like gin and confused my vodka-only palliate, it did give me a great intro to the hottie German lass next to me.

A flirt here, a wink there, and way too many vodkas later, I was solo again, this time headed to a college bar down the block that foolishly served me more drinks.

Whipping out my Nairobi ‘Mad House’ Mojo I started chatting up an American beauty at the bar.

How did it go, you ask? Check out the photo!

    i lived in boston from ’02-’04 and just blogged about something cambridge on my Vancouver blog yesterday. This morning I was thinking again about Harvard Square… and Grendels and thought to myself – I never really enjoyed it – always crowded, the food wasn’t that great – but the people I was with always wanted to go there. Strange. Glad things worked out for you though :p
